with a button inside an HTML control, using AB2 and Electron.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks David, for your time,
I will give it a try... one more question. I DON'T want to close my app on pressing "Back button" on Android.
How can I avoid this?

Have a nice week.

Hello Asley,

Prevent the default behaviour of the back button cannot be more easy, just use the below code in the app's "BackButton" event:

However, maybe you already try something like that and cannot see it working... this is due to a bug in DecSoft App Builder, which is has been fixed right now, so, update your copy and try it, Asley.

P.S. Please, maintain different questions separated in different threads: don't hesitate to open all the threads that you needed! I know you add a second question to this thread because it's the "Email style", just reply with other question... but here in the forum, maintain different threads for different questions is good. :-)
